“Refs are different”- Tottenham superstar defends Sessegnon after red card incident vs NS Mura

Harry Kane backs Ryan Sessegnon following the red card incident as Tottenham Hotspur lost to NS Mura

According to Football.LondonHarry Kane has defended Ryan Sessegnon after he picked up a red card in Tottenham Hotspur’s loss vs NS Mura. Spurs lost 2-1 on the night after failing to capitalise on their late rally to find a winner.

Kane tried to initiate a comeback after he equalised in the second half but in the end, had to suffer one of the most embarrassing European losses in his career. Sessegnon was sent off in the first half for two bookable offences, with a rather naive lunge that ultimately sealed his fate on the day.

It was his first start in a long time as he had just recovered from a recurring injury. He would have wanted to impress the new coach but was on the wrong end of the stick. The striker did say the 21-year-old was disappointed with himself after the match but added that the youngster should not be discouraged and use this as a learning curve to push forward.

Harry Kane defends Ryan Sessegnon following the red card incident.

“He’s young and has not had too many European games. The refs are different, the atmosphere is different. He is devastated but he is a young kid and will learn from it for sure.”

“He has been working very hard, he’ll bounce back and will be available for us and I am sure the next time he gets on the pitch he will do everything to help us.”

Time to bounce back

The wide man would feel that he cost his team the win, and that is understandable. After all, the game could have turned out very differently had Spurs played the last 60 minutes of the game with 11 men. But he must pick himself up just like he did after the injury and work to get his chance again.

The youngster has a number of years ahead of him, and moments like this would help him gain mental strength which is valuable in the long run. It is also good to see how the England skipper backed him to find his feet again, showing his leadership quality.

The path to success is not always rosy, and while we should have won this match, things do not always go the way we want. It is time for him and others who failed to make a mark in this game to use this as a wake-up call and strive forward.

Sessegnon, in particular, should be optimistic with Conte now being at the helm. The former Juventus and Chelsea manager has made good use of attacking full-backs in the past, and the youngster can hope to make the left wing-back position his own in the coming years.
